We are constantly asked about our team, so here you go!
We are a team made up of volunteers who are all passionate about raising awareness of Hip Dysplasia and Impingement, alongside supporting others.
This is Ruqayyah and she is our Chief Moderator and our Area Manager for the South of the United Kingdom. Ruqayyah helped Hannah (above) to set up HappyHips in 2010 and has been there eversince. Ruqayyah is a wonderful member of the HappyHips Team who also suffers from Hip Dysplasia herself and had a Hip Replacement as a Teen. She has battled with the challenges Hip Dysplasia causes amazingly well and loves being able to support others by sharing her own experiences. When Hannah is absent in meetings or on Annual Leave Ruqayyah is left in charge and runs everything perfectly. She can always be relied upon. She too is studying for her degree at University and spends a large proportion of her spare time completing HappyHips work.
Hayley is kept very busy welcoming and supporting any members from the North of the United Kingdom. Hayley is a shining light in HappyHips and a great inspiration to all with her passion for competing in Boxing matches in her local area. She is also currently studying alongside a part time job and balances HappyHips into her free time.
One Hip World (OHW) is an organisation that aims to build a community for the world of people with Hip Dysplasia, by encouraging a kind, loving and supportive atmosphere that strengthens others in their fight, and to make the world of Hip Dysplasia just a little bit `smaller'. At the same time they aim to empower those affected by Hip Dysplasia by helping them control the overwhelming feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and frustration. All of this is achieved while simultaneously raising astonishing amounts of money for IHDI. Togethwe we will, Together we can!!!
